Motorola Moto G4 Plus

 

The Moto G4 Plus is an affordable midrange smartphone that gives you solid hardware, a crisp 1080p display, and broad carrier compatibility, but the competition is fierce.

Relatively affordable. Crisp 1080p display. Solid battery life. Fingerprint sensor. Dual-band Wi-Fi. Expandable storage. Latest software and no bloatware. LTE bands for all carriers.

Can't handle high-end games. Fingerprint sensor doesn't function as Home button. Non-removable battery.

Software and Conclusions The phone runs stock Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow . There are no real UI changes to speak of aside from the addition of Motorola ID in the settings menu, which links you to your Motorola account. Even better, there's no bloatware,...

Moto G4 and G4 Plus review: Bigger and (mostly) better

 

The Moto G4 Plus finally brings a great camera into Motorola's budget lineup. It's decently fast for the price, though the build quality might not last years of use.

Inexpensive ; Large, vibrant screen ; Solid performance for the price

Camera suffers severely in low light ; Plastic build might not be durable ; Not waterproof like last year

Motorola's big problem with these new phones is that the last Moto G was simply too good. In pushing for larger screens and other upgrades, it also introduced some compromises. Ultimately though, the good outweighs the bad. The Moto G4 and G4 Plus...

Moto G4 Plus review: one step forward, multiple steps back

 

I'm angry right now. Angry that it's 2016 and Android smartphone performance can still be awful. Furious that we're approaching the 10th anniversary of the iPhone and Apple's competitors still...

Very attractive display ; Strong, rigid, hard-wearing construction ; Close to perfectly stock Android

Performance is sluggish to the point of being offensive ; Fingerprint sensor is not a home button (and is a little slow) ; Mediocre camera isn’t helped by wimpy processor

Motorola Moto G4 Plus (64GB, white)

 

Both phones offer a bevy of solid features, including 5.5-inch full HD screens, capable octa-core processors and decent 3,000mAh batteries, including some notable niceties -- expandable storage and water-resistant bodies -- not found on current iPhone...

In addition to retaining its sibling's water-resistant body and full HD screen, the Moto G4 Plus adds a fingerprint sensor, slightly better camera, and you can select more storage and memory.

That fingerprint scanner confusingly looks like a home button, and the lack of NFC means you can't use the phone for contactless payments.

The Moto G4 Plus adds a fingerprint sensor and slightly better camera to the mix, but its cheaper sibling is still the better deal.

Moto G4 Plus review: An affordable 5.5″ budget smartphone

 

Motorola has another budget smartphone winner on their hands, with great battery life, a 5.5″ screen, and decent camera.

Decent performance, great battery, decent camera. Responsive fingerprint scanner

USB-C would have been nice instead of Micro-USB. Pricing is a bit high in Canada

If you're looking for a close to stock Android smartphone with great battery life, a decent camera, and a larger screen, the Moto G4 Plus should be on your consideration list.

Motorola Moto G4 Plus Review Tim Schiesser

 

In the past we've had no trouble recommending the Moto G for those after a fantastic budget smartphone. In 2016, Motorola has expanded the Moto G line and the $250 Moto G4 Plus is the most fully featured of the bunch. It shares the same display, SoC...

Fantastic rear camera. Great upgrades to the display. Runs stock Android. Includes a fingerprint sensor. Above average battery life.

Generic plastic design. Performance isn’t great for the price. Lacks value compared to the non-Plus model.

Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus Review

 

Although the ‘4' designation isn't official, Motorola's recently released Moto G and Moto G Plus represent the fourth generation of the smartphone, long held to be one of the best mid-range smartphone deals on the market. And, that's exactly what these...

Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus

 

The 4th generation Moto G and Moto G Plus unlocked Android smartphones sell for $199 and $249 respectively-- that's a lot of phone for the price, both literally and figuratively. The Moto G4 and G4 Plus are big phones with 5.5" IPS full HD displays....

Very affordable, works with all major carriers, quality and customer service despite low price. Good cameras

These are large phones, old Moto G owners who like small phones will be disappointed. Occasional lag

Not everyone wants to spend as much on their phone as on their laptop. That doesn't mean you have to get a crappy phone or a no-name import if you want to spend just $199 to $250. Heck, the Moto G4 is half the price of a OnePlus Three! The Moto G and G...

Review: Motorola G4 and G4 Plus -- Unlocked

 

Motorola's middleweight smartphones are back for another round. The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus share most features, but the Plus adds a little something extra. These devices run a near stock version of Android and enjoy some welcome enhancements from...

The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are the result of that unemotional, business-driven reflex. They are soulless phones that have been stripped of the heart Motorola put into the first three generations of G-branded handsets.

Priced affordably ; MicroSD expansion ; Turbo charging ; Large vibrant display ; MotoMaker (market dependent) ; Durable build ; Good camera ; Fingerprint sensor
